Subject: [CR]Mavic Mod. 3 vs. Wolber Super Champion Mod. 58

My early 80s Gitane tandem has a Mavic Mod. 3 rim in front and a Wolber Super Champion 58 in back (both 27 x 1 1/4). Which one should I swap out to create a matching pair on the bike appropriate to the era and bike? Which was the better rim for its time? Or was it conventional for tandems to run a Mavic in front and Wolber in the back?
